Chinese people mourn death of a *true* whistleblower, Dr. Wenliang Li, who broke the news to the world about the coronavirus. The people of China and the world owe this brave man much for what he did.
Mediaite announced Dr. Li’s death in a post:
Chinese “whistleblower doctor” Li Wenliang, who was interviewed by CNN after being sanctioned for warning others about the coronavirus, has died.
Li warned others back in December 2019, after noticing a test result which showed a patient in the hospital he worked at had a coronavirus, and was subsequently “summoned by Wuhan police to sign a reprimand letter in which he was accused of ‘spreading rumors online’ and ‘severely disrupting social order,’” according to CNN.
“Dr. Li was hospitalized on January 12 after [he] contracted the virus from his patient, and he was confirmed to have the coronavirus on February 1,” CNN reported.
Some brave Chinese remembered Dr. Li today.
See this moving tribute as two men drop off flowers and then blow whistles in his honor.
This video is going viral on China social media today.
This doctor was a real whistleblower.
He may have saved thousands, if not millions of lives.
The people of China honored this hero today.
